Through his experiences on the ice, in the classroom, and in personal professional development symposiums with USA Hockey, Coach Tuck continues to hone his coaching skills, while deepening his understanding of the game. He embraces feedback, seeks out new perspectives, and actively seeks opportunities to expand his knowledge base.

Coach Tuck’s belief in lifelong learning is not just a professional ethos; it's a core value that drives him to push the boundaries of his coaching abilities and explore innovative approaches to player development.

Personal Message From David

“Hockey isn’t just a game to me - it’s been a lifelong passion that has shaped me into the person I am today. From my early days of skating on the pond near my childhood home, to my collegiate career and adventures playing in Europe, hockey has been a constant thread woven throughout my life. Now, as the Director of Coaching and Player Advancement for the SC Flyers, I am excited to continue giving back to the sport that has given me so much.”
